Online hate speech came into focus recently when allies of previous US President Donald Trump endeavored to lead a coup, of sorts, by raging the Capitol Building.

However, there is another side to these figures.

While, as Facebook takes note of, the hate speech that it’s detected is on the decrease, there is as yet a worry with this given Facebook’s scale.

As per Facebook:

“In Q1, [the prevalence of hate speech] was 0.05-0.06%, or 5 to 6 views per 10,000 views.”

Which is acceptable, and down on the 8 for each 10k that Facebook detailed back in February. Yet, Facebook has 1.9 billion daily active users. Suppose that every one of these individuals is seeing 10 posts each day, which would be a low gauge. Indeed, even at 0.05% view, that would imply that Facebook is working with a large number of views of hate speech every day.

Whether Facebook gets along nicely at finding and eliminating these offending posts, it’s still further with sharing of such posts – and those appraisals do exclude unreported substance in private gatherings, messages or WhatsApp.

Furthermore, Facebook additionally noticed that, in Q1, it made a move on 8.8 million bits of bullying and harassment content on Facebook, and 5.5 million occurrences of bullying and harassment content on Instagram.
